Honey Money!

Community agencies get funding from Propsera's Cinemas Under the Stars

Released by Tashon Ziara, Prospera Credit Union, Abbotsford



ummer’s over and fall is definitely here. But what an amazing summer it was! Warm nights; fun, free, family movies under the stars; and of course, popcorn.


This year, Prospera Cinema Under the Stars hosted 11 free movie nights in communities from Surrey to the Okanagan. At each event, the credit union invited a local charity partner to join them in order to raise money and awareness for the great work these amazing organizations do all year round.


As a result, a total of $4,760.52 was raised for community partners, including:

Success by 6

Mission Heritage Association

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Langley

Penticton and Area Access Society

Habitat for Humanity

What makes it all worthwhile for the Prospera staff who volunteer at these movie nights? If you ask, they’ll tell you it’s all about the kids and comments like this one from a mom who posted on Prospera’s Facebook page:


“A HUGE thank you to Prospera “Movies under the Stars’ for making these events a part of my kids’ childhood memories!”


Prosbeara hopes to see everyone again next summer with a whole new batch of free family movies.
